Book Summary
What does it mean to be human? ”The answer lies

within the mystery of Genesis. Set in a postapocalyptic

future, the novel takes the form of an examination undergone

by young Anaximander as she prepares to enter an

enigmatic institution known simply as The Academy. For

her subject she has chosen the life of the philosopher-soldier

Adam Forde, her long-dead hero. It is through Anax’s presentation and her answers to persistent questioning by her

examiners that we learn the history of her island Republic,

along with the rules and beliefs of their society. At the completion of the examination, when everything has been laid

bare, Anax must confront the Republic’s last great secret,

her own surprising link to Adam Forde, and the horrifying

truth about her world.

Like the great writers Isaac Asimov and Philip K.Dick,

Bernard Beckett explores the relationship between humans

and technology in a brilliantly rendered novel that will keep

readers guessing until the final page.
